Jen’s Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup

In October, Thursday is Crock Pot Soup Day on the blog! When I think of cooler days, I think of homemade soup. As the people closest to me knows, I can’t just make a recipe the way it is written.

Don’t Worry About Tomorrow

Don’t Worry About Tomorrow

I have been told, “Don’t Worry about Tomorrow” but what does that really mean? I do not remember a time in my life when I didn’t worry about something.

What is it like to have Transient Aphasia? Most importantly, I know what I want to say but when I try to say the words everything sounds garbled, slurred and…

Slow Cooker Zuppa Toscana

Slow Cooker Zuppa Toscana

Nothing says fall like some nice hot soup and nothing makes it easier like the slow cooker! They are the perfect combination to create a hearty meal for your family. This Zuppa Toscana recipe is a copycat recipe of the famous one from Olive Garden but I think it is so much better! This recipe is supposed to have a little kick of spice but the hot Italian sausage is too much for me so I use the original flavor…

My how time does fly by! It is already October and this is my 3rd month taking part in the Link Up Party at A Chronic Voice.
